Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.1Ok, Well what I would do is see a chart of the average precipitation levels throughout the year and then you can describe the pattern. I found this chart. http://www.usclimatedata.com/climate.php?location=USAK0012 Oh ok, well based on your list the rainfall is averagely 0.70in through the months of JanMay. In JuneDec the average is 2.00in. Something like that. lol
